Can phone numbers (111-111-1111) be placeables? Right now, MemoQ doesn't correct them. E.g.,
TM: Call 222-222-2222
Source: Call 333-333-3333
Target: Call 222-222-2222 65%

Thank you!

I 'm not sure what your intent is. Looks like you're complainingicon_wink.gif
Are you going to modify phone numbers in the text you're working on?
Why modify if at all? Any such modification would be an error. Phone numbers should remain unchanged.

Could you please explain your point?

Auto-Translation Jun 27, 2014

Yes, you can set an Auto-Translation rule (in the Resource Console) using a RegEx-like filter that will either transfer a given sequence such as a phone number directly from source to target or modify it with a filter. Filter rules are a bit of a learning curve but they are very powerful.
